On Campus Recycling

Indoor Recycling

The Office of Sustainability is trying to simplify and amplify the recycling process for our students, faculty, and staff. We are doing this by installing uniform, connected landfill and recycling bins throughout campus. Uniform, clearly labeled bins will eliminate confusion as to which bins are recycling and which are trash, and therefore will increase the amount of recycling UC captures. The connected bins help by always providing a recycling bin next to a landfill bin, encouraging people who do not wish to look for a further away recycling bin to conveniently recycle their waste. The Office of Sustainability is going through building by building replacing the assortment of old bins with the new uniform, connected bins. These bins have been implemented in the following buildings: College of Law Building, Langsam Library, Tangeman University Center, Design, Art, Architecture, and Planning, Rieveschl, Zimmer, Care/Crawley, Marian Spencer Hall, Calhoun Hall, Siddall Hall, Marian Spencer Hall.

Outdoor Recycling

Working to divert waste from the landfill and increase recycling on campus, the Office of Sustainability and Facilities Management have placed Petosky recycling and landfill units next to each other in outdoor areas throughout campus. At the end of 2018, an additional 20 units were added to the McMicken area.
